Irish mythology, with its magical beings like faeries and banshees, has long captivated imaginations of people around the world. Scéal (Irish for “story”), a recently-released sidescroller by multinational development studio Joint Custody, taps into the Emerald Isle’s cultural themes to promise a story-based, casual experience.

October may be over, but that doesn't mean the end of all-things-horror for another year. The latest to emerge from the shadows is a 3D adventure called Gray Destiny, coming early next year from indie Romanian developer VisualPath Studio.
What would you do if you found yourself trapped on a creepy space station with nothing but a computer to help you escape? That is the premise of Code 7, a very atypical, text-based, five-episode adventure game which recently received funding on Kickstarter.
Of all the possible horrors associated with being standed alone in space, it's perhaps the terrors of the mind that are the most dangerous. We'll find out soon enough whether that's true again in Tether, an indie sci-fi thriller from Freesphere Entertainment coming sometime next year.
If there's one incontrovertible rule of time travel, it's don't mess with history! In the newly-released "stealth adventure" called The Challenge, it will be your difficult task to ensure that nobody does that very thing.

While various ports have been announced for The Inner World since its original release in 2013, nothing has been said about a sequel.

One positive side-effect of video gaming’s ever-increasing popularity is the resulting boost in diversity. While the industry still has work to do, it’s much easier to find varied representations of gender, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation among titles available today than it was just a few years ago. Case in point: Escape from Pleasure Planet, an unabashedly pro-gay sci-fi adventure. The brainchild of Australian indie developer Luke Miller, the game recently achieved its funding goals on Kickstarter and is now headed toward release early next year.
